Apple Days

Apple Days at MelroseApple Days at Melrose

The small but beautiful Priorwood Gardens is hosting an Apple Day. Their gardens are next to Melrose Abbey and Melrose itself is well worth a visit. Not only will you be able to learn more about apples, there will be stalls as well and why not buy some apples for dookin' when you get back to your lodge. For more information have a look at their Facebook Page

At Airhouses

.....and don't forget, we have our own Pumpkin Treasure Trail at Airhouses. And if you are in your hot tub at dusk, watch out for our farm bats swooping and darting about.
